ssh-askpass | kinit


Has anybody considered making it possible for kinit to get a password
from ssh-askpass?

That way it would be simple to have a graphical front end for the
password prompt. e.g. with

ssh-askpass "kerberos password" | kinit

Unfortunately, kinit appears to bypass STDIN/STDOUT and read/write
directly to/from /dev/tty.

Anyway, just a thought.
